You don't need a photo ID, but you do need to watch this final Presidential debate. Make a special note to watch the Free and Equal Election Debate between third party candidates, Gov. Gary Johnson and Dr. Jill Stein to be aired tonight on Monday evening, Nov. 5th from 9:00 - 10:30 pm Eastern Time. Perform a worthwhile civic duty, and be certain to listen in on this historic debate so that you can make an informed decision on voting day. Third party candidates who will be on the ballot in most states deserve to be heard. http://freeandequal.org/?v=1

No one is required to show a photo ID in order to vote in Pennsylvania on November 6th. So, why then should any poll worker ask if you have a photo ID, unless it is an effort to intimidate uninformed voters! The State of Pennsylvania should be ashamed to have been a part of this "Voter Photo ID" debacle.

I strongly agree with William Brenner. We should be "facilitating" people voting, not setting up hurdles that make it difficult to vote in a Democracy. Those who try and impose these regulations should be ashamed of themselves. It is an attempt to stop poor people ( who often do not have "official " voter ID) from voting. It is an intimidation tactic and is beneath those who love this country
